I bought it cheap (just over £4k) as it had 150,000 miles on the clock. I knew that with that mileage, a biggish bill was an inevitability and I have...

    I bought a 20v with a 60k service @ 54k and I'm beginning to think it wasn't really done well: the wiper control stick is broken and I've just found a 4" gash in the turbo hose. In the last week, the steering column sensors and the overboost have also broken. Is this grounds to get them to pay...
